10 Most Notorious Uwe Boll Films

The ones he'll be remembered for.

Artisan Entertainment

It doesn’t matter if you plan on watching Uwe Boll’s latest film or giving it the widest berth possible – the German filmmaker swears that Rampage: President Down will be his last movie.

Dubbed the “dark god of bad video game movies” by Time Magazine, Boll’s retirement was greeted with predictable cheers and caustic comments that drowned out his message. “The market is dead,” the director said. “You don’t make any money anymore because the DVD and Blu-Ray market worldwide has dropped 80 percent in the last 3 years.”

Describing streaming as “just a big wave of movies flooding around” where “you have no impact”, Boll paints a grim picture of filmmaking in 2016. If an established (and it must be said accomplished) filmmaker struggles to finance, release and make a living from his own movies, what future is there for up and coming independent filmmakers? Or diversity in film in general?

Are we heading for a Transformers future? Watch this space.

In the meantime, here are the 10 movies Boll will be remembered for, from the good to the bad to the so bad they’re good.
